When you ssh into a remote box for the first time or if the remote host's key fingerprint has changed (from what's stored in your known_hosts file) you get a warning and you are shown the fingerprint of the host's key.
Does it compromise your security if you share the fingerprint publicly (i.e. with potential attackers)? Or is this a case where it's okay for everyone to know the fingerprint of a server, because ssh is doing something behind the scenes (from my perspective as a simple user) such that the fingerprint can't be spoofed, even if it's known?
Since you can see the fingerprint just by attempting to ssh in to the server using a nonsense account, I assume that means the fingerprint should be okay to be publicly shared (but you know what happens when you assume...).
